Gorthwedh is going on tour. After a series of screenings in the temporary pop up structure by the coast, free screenings of the original film poem by Callum Mitchell across various venues star with Newlyn Film House on Sunday 23 February.
Gorthwedh: art project
The Tin Coast is a place of many contrasts. It’s abundant with nature, wildlife and geological riches as well as having a visible legacy of mining history dating back thousands of years.
‘Why is this place special to you?’ This is the question asked by Callum Mitchell, a Cornish artist commissioned to lead ‘Gorthwedh’: an evolving arts project running throughout 2019 - reaching into 2020.
Gorthwedh means ‘contrast’ in Cornish, and this project reflects on the area’s industrial past, its social changes and its meaning to residents and visitors today.

**Please note these screenings have been postponed until later in the year**
New dates added: in February and March 2020, Gorthwedh the original film will be screened at community venues in West Cornwall starting with Newlyn Filmhouse on Sunday 23 February. All screenings are free to attend.
" There was no script and no agenda, my one aim was to turn the focus on some of those who are not usually given the opportunity to have their voices heard, to simply listen to people and attempt to engage them in an open conversation about their lives and how they feel about the place where they live.
